2:09 am
>> if you didn't already fall in love with adele, you probably did at the grammys. she won all the awards, she swept, she's great. anyway, so there's sort of, i guess, the british equivalent of the grammys in britain. and she was getting her award, i think it was last night. and she was giving her acceptance speech. it was weird because in the middle of her speech, she got cut off. and then she decided to -- >> let them know how she felt about getting cut off. >> coming to the brits and winning album of the year. i'm so, so proud to be british and to be flying our flag, and i'm so proud to be in the room with all of you. >> at that point, at that point, this guy comes up. and he says to her, i'm terribly sorry, but i'm going to have to cut you off. and what you see, kind of fuzzy in the corner, is her giving -- letting everyone know who's number one. >> she didn't do it to her fans, she says.
2:10 am
really? really? >> she said it was for the suit. >> the suit. >> the suit who cut her off. >> apparently somebody ahead of her -- and this is why you shouldn't do this -- had taken way too long and had not left enough time for her, which was the final one of the evening. you know, you can understand it, but it's still unfortunate. you know what else is unfortunate? >> oh, no, no. all right. sheila hershey, shayla hershey. we've shown you pictures before. this is one from her facebook page. anyhoo. >> i bet she's fun at cocktail parties. >> she does hold the guinness book of world records for the biggest breasts. she's got 38kkks. and she actually wants to go to ms. >> it took her 13 years and 22 surgeries to get there. why not just do it all in one fell swoop? i don't understand. maybe your skin can't stretch that much initially. it has to -- you know? >> gradual.
2:11 am
>> yeah. >> anyway. >> i don't know. >> she's on one of those tlc reality shows that's called "my strange addiction." it says she has more surgeries to increase her breasts to an "m," but she had a staph infection. she had to go back to the "ks" and not the "ms." it's very complicated. >> here's the sad part of it. you know what? she's obviously screaming for attention. you know, that will get them. that will get you some attention. but the sad part is that now she can no longer tie her own shoes, we understand. hoda, it's not funny. it's tragic. stop it. and this is the worst, she can't even hug her daughter. arms just don't go that -- they can't make room for another human being in there. so, you know, i mean, you know, i think it's -- she's addicted, definitely, to it. but there's, you know, if you take those breasts away from her, it doesn't feel like she has any value at all. and it's a terrible role model for young girls. >> i'm sorry. anyway. i feel bad.
2:12 am
>> no, you don't. nobody believes you. >> i don't want what to say about it. anyhoo. here's the thing. a lot of people do want cosmetic surgery, plastic surgery. >> they want a face-lift. >> they want a face-lift. all of these starlets in their 20s that are gorgeous, they say, i'm never going to do anything. the first -- ah! they run to the botox. >> right. so there's a new study out that says if you do plastic surgery, a face-lift -- >> right. >> -- the full-on face-lift, if you're wondering how many years that would take off, let's say you did it when you were 55 or 60. >> like i should have. >> they say it cuts off 7.2 years off of your looks. if you think you're going to look 10 or 15 years younger, you're really only look like you did seven years before. >> which i guess for some people it's worth the price and the pain and suffering and the recuperation. but i think a lot of people go in thinking i'm going to look 20 again. >> yeah. >> and the trouble is, once you start there, then you've got to -- you can't even go out and take the hair out of your face without giving yourself away
2:13 am
because your hands don't look eight years younger or 20 years younger. so you've got to do all of yourself. then you spend most of your life recuperating from a surgery. and nobody knows you anymore. and it's bizarre. >> yeah. a friend of mine said before you go in for plastic surgery, if you want plastic surgery or a lift or something -- >> and we're not putting anybody down who wants it. >> before you do it, they said if you can, take a week, if you can, and just rest. rest, sleep, go on a teeny vacation, then come back. because often when you feel wiped out, you're exhausted, you feel run down, i need to do this now. when you're on your best day to see if you really feel like you need it. >> or i'm telling you, these fillers these days are so good, you can look ten years younger just with fillers if they're done properly. just don't get 20 years worth at the same time. >> and it's hard to get lifts at all because if you do anything to your lips, it's so noticeable. that's the one thing. >> i know, i know. go to somebody who really knows -- find somebody, a friend, who
2:14 am
looks fantastic and ask her, or him, who did it and go to that person who's reputable. not everybody can go to my precious -- >> dr. wexler. >> dr. wexler. she's just not available for everyone. she's very busy. >> i'm not going to, like -- >> every other week. >> how weird. i don't like this story so you'll have to do it. i know i'm not going to like it. i don't even know what it is. >> apparently neither one have seen this, our facebook friend, michelle, saw this ad and posted it on our wall saying it made her think of hoda and how she loves our show. >> before and after what? is that a shampoo? >> oh, hair. the little lioness had her hair done. i can't imagine why she thinks that. that's sweet, though, hoda. >> we also want to thank our fan of the week. sometimes we send our fans to great, exotic locations. >> almost every time, yes. there was just that one unfortunate trip. >> a wonderful guy named john
2:15 am

2:16 am
madonna, michael jackson, that kind of musical -- >> so we're going to go down memory lane. >> yes, we are. >> on friday. >> we're also going to do an ambush makeover. if you feel like you're stuck in the '80s, you're going to get made over. i don't know what oels. >> it's going to be fun. send those in. sara's got a new batch of photos that will make you say, what the -- >> william shatner is here. be afraid. be very afraid. he's going to let us into his wacky, wonderful world. and that's right after this.

>> we have donny deutsch. the deutsche man. ♪ donny donny deutsch man." okay, sara. >> our question first is from judith. i've been dating a guy a little over four months. after three dates i could tell i was falling in love. when i asked him about his feelings, he said he did not feel the same way. we have a great time when we're together. as time goes on, will he feel the same for me or should i move on? >> mistake number one, after a third date, don't ask a man about his feelings. >> ooh, yeah. >> just don't say what are you feeling. at some point into the relationship, you could say that. and the good news, he was honest with you. now, if he said to you, look, i don't feel this way about you, i don't think i ever will. that's one thing. if he said hey, it's only been three dates, i'm not sure. that's an honest response. don't ask a man early on, how are you feeling? where is this going? not a good thing. >> also you don't know well enough to know if he's telling you the truth or not. >> i might do a little time-out and step out. i don't know after three dates. i know there's love at first sight. >> be mysterious. men like a little mystery.
2:47 am
>> we like a lot of mystery. >> our next question is from sheila. how do i get my man to take me seriously when i try to talk to him about my needs? >> first of all, the word "needs," it's an abstract -- who wants to deal with needs? but you have specific things that are important to you. and so you have to choose, as a woman, or a man it's reverse, what are the things that are really critical? him saying he loves you once a week. in other words, a man is not there to meet your needs. and vice versa. a man is there to be respectful of what's important to you and be cognizant of it. so separate those two things. i sound smart today. >> what's going on? >> who are you? >> what happened to you? are you in love? >> no. the more time i spend being a daddy, the more you elevate yourself. it's interesting. that is what's happening to me. i find things coming out of my mouth now. you have daughters, it changes everything. >> that's great. >> what's next? >> from mandy, my fiance is private about his past.
2:48 am
i know enough not to be suspicious, but why is he so private? >> by the way, a past is who you are. so there's nothing -- and by the way, in this world right now, it's not -- i don't mean to be a detective, it's not hard to find out. but by the way, i always, early on, like tell me about your last husband. so if he's being private about his past, there's a reason. that's not a good sign. because your past is who you are. you should be very open about where you're from, who you've been with. that's just life. by the way, i'm always suspect of a girl, on a first date, i've never googled you. i know nothing about you. that's the person i know has been studying me for two hours. >> or me because i know nothing about it. >> you are rare in every way. >> oh. let's move on to the next one. i like that one. >> next from beatrice. my man seems to have little patience with conversations which he doesn't agree with my opinion. he literally shuts down, little things such as meal choices, clothing styles.

pair of nude heels. this adds another three inches. the illusion of three inches. >> so what's a no-no? >> you don't want to wear midi skirts or mid-calf-length skirts. you don't want to disrupt that line. same with ankle straps. don't want to disrupt that line. >> thank you. if you have a full derrierre. come on out. so what should you do? >> she's got a great posterior. >> yes, she does. >> a la kim kardashian. >> it's right up there. >> you know, it may seem counterintuitive, but you actually want to expose the area with a lot of coverage. you want to make sure that it's a continuous line. you don't want to add bulk with bulky pockets or a lot of embellishment on the back side, but you do want a trouser cut that's fitted, keep your shirt tucked in and the proportion and you see the difference where the waist comes in and where the curves start. >> thanks, mia.
